K-Cube Ventures announced on September 20th that it has invested in an online English education platform for kids, ‘Mini School’ (CEO: Wook Jeong). Jointly conducted with Plantree Partners, K-Cube Ventures invested $0.4 Million, successfully completing its seed investment.
Mini School, released last June, is an online education solution for children from age 4 to 7. Teachers can operate animated character’s action and facial expression on the web browser such as TV, computer, smartphone by using a remote, and communicate with children via real-time cameras.
Mini School’s interactive education system using animated characters effectively motivates children’s learning. Its ‘Cube-type educational content’ allows teachers to control the level of difficulty according to the child’s level of understanding, providing customized learning for each child. Parents can also easily manage their children’s learning progress by using ‘Parents Report’ that includes recorded lecture videos, learning progress, and class evaluation.
Wook Jeong, CEO of Mini School said, “From this investment, Mini School will concentrate in offering more child-friendly and high-quality education by cooperating with popular animated character brands. We are also planning to showcase our original education content on Mini School’s in-house mobile app.”
Shinah Jeong, Partner of K-Cube Ventures who led this investment said, “Mini School has expertise in educational contents and platform development led by its CEO Wook Jeong, a former developer at Kakaotalk’s Voicetalk project and director, Jongkoo Ahn who was the head of planning and management in the education industry. I hope Mini School can develop differentiated contents and curriculums endlessly, growing into an edu-tech company specialized in education for infants and toddlers.”
